FAMILY DOLLAR DISTRIBUTION CENTER ORDE R
Pending is Plaintiff's motion for reconsideration. (Docket # 33).

The letters between the parties are inadmissible for the purposes offered by Plaintiff and were properly removed from the record. Plaintiff's motion is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED this 11th day of March, 2010.
